Chak De India

Rating: Beyond Rating-Just too good

This movie is gonna take your heart out for India.What a movie? A true display of courage,spirit and patriotism

Kabir Khan(Shahrukh Khan) is an awesome hockey player playing for team India.However the team loses the world cup and the blame goes on the captain i.e. Kabir Khan.He is also blamed for fixing the match and his image is defoiled by the media.The public is also against him and now he needs to get his honour back and he needs to prove to the country that he loves India and do anything for it and that he is not a traitor.
After living 7 years in isolation finally he strikes back by becoming the coach of the Indian women hockey team and his challenge is to make them win the world cup.The best players of India are brought together and prepared for the world cup.The diversity of the team poses a greater challenge to the coach to establish a world class team.However, he is successful in doing the same and Indian Hockey team wins the world cup

My Review:
The movie convincingly covers a lot of aspects like the dispute between people of India reflected in the team.The team comprises of players from Haryana,Punjab,Andhra Pradesh,Manipur,Jharkand,etc. When asked to introduce themselves to the coach each one adds the name of the state with their name.Kabir tells them to add India and not name of states along with their names.Only once they recognise teh fact that they are playing for the country can they gather the spirit to succeed.
Another thing which comes out in the movie is the death of hockey in India and how looked upon it is.Above that what the movie shows gender bias in sports i.e. women are generally accepted as being housewives and not sports people.It also shows the most basic reason for India's failure in sports at an international sport-lak of tam spirit.The movie beautifully tackles each and every such issue.
You wont move an inch from your seat in the movie hall.You are completely captured by the film running in front of u.It seems as if you are part of the movie and watching a live performance or a live hockey match.I am not a hockey game fan but the thrill,passion and spirit in the movie mesmerizes you.You are in a different world.

About Shahruh Khan and Director:
This man has done a lifetime performance.He has exhibited such composure and passion that his work is indeed commendable.Apart from Shahrukh, the girls in teh team also stand out.Each one has a special part to play.Two catch your attenton with their punjabi and haryanvi accents,one with her awesome looks,another with her great hold on the game.
The direction is flawless.The movie just flows and you flow with it.Finally Seeing is Believing so go ahead and watch it.

Hi, Virinder,
how's it going?
it's me Rama
founder of Rama's SCREEN.
you left me a comment some time ago.
I apologize for the late reply.

Nice movie blog you got going on here.
It seems you got good connection and friends to help you run the site.
Lucky you.
In my case, my friend helped set up the site, and I run it by myself.
It gets pretty time consuming.

I'm not really an expert since I myself just started in this blogging industry this year.

But I'm gonna tell you what my competitors have told me.

Build readers, focus on coming up with interesting articles and headlines to attract readers and make them loyal fans.

don't worry about advertising money for now.. just build readers.

and for that to happen you need to.. constantly researching for new and interesting subject to discuss, things that would catch their eyes, like colorful graphics, videoclips of trailers and previews, podcast, various categories to cater to fans of various movie genres. And remember to present them in simple, straightforward and often fun language just like you've done so far having read some of your movie reviews.

And make it user-friendly too, so that if they want to see a certain review, they could just easily and quickly go to that link without having to scroll down the page

I'm not knowledgeable when it comes to Bollywood but it's definitely a great movie industry and you have more potential target market there. That's your advantage over mine. Keep doing what you're doing and make it CATCHY! :)

Keep up the good work, buddy.. and I'll make sure to put in some of my thoughts into your articles from time to time.

Thank you :)
